When it came to giving birth I just wanted to go with the flow....


During pregnancy, in-between thinking about my next snack and 'all-day' sickness, I was taking on so much NEW information- all of the do's and don'ts of pregnancy, on top of preparing to welcome a newborn into the family. So much so that I didn't have the brain space to think about birth, let alone plan for it, and just wanted to go with the flow. It also didn't help that I was dreading it!..... But I am so glad that I did, because birth is powerful, and when you know all of your options and about possible challenges, then so are you! Like they say, knowledge is power.

Imagine your wedding day... it's so nice not having to worry about what to wear, how to do your hair, your make-up, just having everything planned out ahead of the big day. You have your team of bridesmaids or groomsmen knowing where everyone need to be, along with any back-up plans (what if it rains?!). Fully allowing you to just go with the flow- soaking up those magical feelings of love, excitement and happiness throughout the day. The last thing you want to be doing on your wedding day is making a decision about something you hadn't even thought about, because something didn't go to plan.

Birth is the same.... it too is unpredictable (like the weather of a British Summer!)..... but you can approach it empowered with knowledge, with you and your birth partner armed with your tool-kit of calming techniques for a more comfortable birth, knowing what you can control, whilst being able to let go of what you can't. You would have already discussed with your birth partner the 'what ifs' and be aware of all of your choices and options. For me, the power is not in the actual birth plan itself, it's in the process of becoming educated and the conversations you have when writing it... allowing you to truly go with the flow of birth on the day! 

'Definitely the best thing we’ve done in the pregnancy so far! Michelle has the most wonderful, calming presence and knows her stuff! She really put me at ease and has made me feel so much more confident and empowered going into my labour, my husband also found the sessions extremely helpful. I’d recommend Michelle to anyone wanting to learn more about hypnobirthing for their labour! Thanks so much again Michelle!'

My one-day intensive antenatal course teaches you and your birth partner everything you need to know, to feel confident and completely prepared, it is a complete Antenatal and Hypnobirthing course. With a maximum of 3 couples, it gives you the opportunity to meet other expectant parents from our local area, whilst keeping the course personal and allowing me to support you effectively with time to answer your questions. 

Do you want to feel fully prepared, for whatever path birth takes, allowing you to go with the flow on the day?...

Are you ready to have a better understanding of how to work with your birthing hormones and muscles and not against them?...

Do you want to be armed with practical coping techniques that you can use in ALL types of birth, that complement the pain relief options you have available to you?...

In addition to my Hypnobirthing teaching diploma, I also have a degree in Psychology and have taught Maths in secondary schools for over 10 years. That means that I like things that are either logical or backed by science, and my antenatal and hypnobirthing course is exactly that. You can find out more about the science behind it here.


I have always been interested in the Mind-Body connection but I was blown away when I experienced the power of this for myself in birth. I've had two children, and during the birth of my second child things didn't quite go to plan, with only my husband and sister there, no midwife, no paramedics, no medical professional. I was open to pain relief, but when it came to it I had no choice but to birth without, so was incredibly thankful for my tool-kit of coping tools and techniques. 

Hypnobirthing can help everyone, regardless of birth preferences and pain relief choices. Whether you are planning a home birth, or whether you want to learn how to cope at home in early labour, in the car on the way, or whilst you are waiting to be seen at hospital. With a local induction rate of 34% and cesarean rate of nearly 39% it's really important to me that you are fully informed and know how you can use hypnobirthing no matter what path your birth takes, for an empowering experience.


I am fully insured to teach antenatal courses and hypnobirthing classes, and am on the National Register of the Federation of Antenatal Educators. I completed my diploma with KGHypnobirthing, who are accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
